Only in America do banks leave both doors open and then chain the pens to the counters.
Only in America do we leave cars worth thousands of dollars in the driveway and put our useless junk in the garage.
Only in America do we use answering machines to screen calls and then have call waiting so we won't miss a call
from someone we didn't want to talk to in the first place.
Only in America do we buy hot dogs in packages of ten and buns in packages of eight.
Only in America do we use the word 'politics to describe the process so well: 'Poli' in Latin meaning 'many' and

Only in America.....do they have drive-up ATM machines with Braille lettering.

In case you needed further proof that the human race is doomed through stupidity, here are some actual label
instructions on consumer goods:(The sad thing is they wouldn't put these warnings on the product unless someone had
tried it, or couldn't figure it out and called the 800 number to ask.)
On Sears hairdryer: "Do not use while sleeping".[Gee, that's the only time I have to work on my hair]
On a bag of Fritos: "You could be winner! No purchase necessary, Details inside"[Evidently, the shoplifter special]
On a bar of Dial soap: "Directions: Use like regular soap."[And that would be how...?]
On some Swanson frozen dinners:" Serving suggestions: Defrost!"[But it's just a suggestion]
On Tesco's Tiramisu dessert (printed on bottom of box): "Do not turn upside down". Oops, too late!
On Marks & Spencer Bread Pudding:" Product will be hot after heating".[As sure as night follows the day .....]
On packaging for a Rowenta iron: "Do not iron clothes on body".[But wouldn't this save even more time?]
On Children's Cough Medicine: "Do not drive a car or operate machinery after taking this medication".[We could do
a lot to reduce the rate of construction accidents if we could just get those5-year-olds with head colds off those
On Nytol Sleep Aid: "Warning: May cause drowsiness" [One would hope]
On most brands of Christmas lights: "For indoor or outdoor use only".[As opposed to what?]
On a Japanese food processor: "Not to be used for the other use".[I gotta admit, I'm curious].
On Sainsbury's peanuts: "Warning: Contains nuts".
On an American Airlines packet of nuts: "Instructions: open packet, eat nuts."[Step 3: Fly Delta]
On a child's Superman costume: Wearing of this garment does not enable you to fly".
